The Fiji Surfing Association is now gearing up for the Cloudbreak Fiji Pro trials. According to Fiji Surfing head coach Ian Portingale the trials is from April 29 to May 7.

“The nine- day window will allow organisers to conduct the one -day trail event in the best possible conditions,” he said.

Portingale said there’s prize money from first right to those that achieve equal third.

“The winner gains a wildcard entry into the World Championship event and the Fiji Pro event in June.”

Portingale said 12 surfers have been invited to contest the event based on current ratings.

“Amongst those competing are several past winners who have experienced the benefit of winning the wildcard spot and will be desperate to win the coveted spot again.”

The invited surfers are Tevita Gukilau, Lesi Navuwai, Che Slatter, Inia Nakalevu, Isei Tokovo, Aca Raculo, Jimmy Tuitavuki, Ulai Niunitoga, Victor Maginnity, Hannah Bennett, Uri Kurop and Seva Navuwai.

The contest format will utilise the man- on-man system as per World Championship format so Portingale says, competition will see excellent surfing.
